    Hi guys,

    i have a problem. A friend of mine asked me to setup his E4200v1 for his student living home.
    He shares a 150MBit/s line with 4 other people. My first thought was to create 5 seperated
    bridges on tomato so everyone has nicely their own "network" and just gets internet/dns/dhcp
    from the router, nothing more. The users dont want to and should not have access to
    each other. Some will connect over LAN, some over WLAN too.

    But my chosen Tomato (Victek v1.2v) only allows up to 4 bridges (br0-br3) in the GUI.
    Which is a lot, but sadly, just not enough for this case.
    For WLAN i am fine, i can create a total of 6 Virtual Wireless Networks (3x per module)
    and they work, but i would want to bridge each WLAN to its own bridge.

    How can i manage this? Any ideas? Maybe with VLANs? Or simply seperate IP subnets?
    It doenst *have* to be seperate bridges, but i think that would be the easiest way,
    to also have DHCP and DNS working on the interfaces.
